Michigan State Parks To Offer Pet-Friendly Camping

Good news for anyone who plans on going camping with their dog – Michigan officials intend to expand options for pet fans who may want to bring their favorite companions on camping trips.

Starting this November, the state’s lodges and some state park cabins will start to accept people traveling with dogs or cats. Leashed pets are currently allowed in campsites, but cannot remain in state-owned facilities.

MLive.com reports that vacationers in both the Upper and Lower Peninsula have long requested to bring pets into cottages.

“Their pets make their travel decisions for them,” said Maia Turek, DNR resource development specialist. A lot of people may not have the ability to go camping because they can’t leave their pet unattended if you can’t find a kennel, especially for a holiday weekend.

State officials said they want to assess the project after one season. There’s a chance it might be opened up to other sites, if it goes well, and we’re hoping that it does.
